-- our first caller is calling from asheville, n.c., on our line for independences. caller: rob, i'm surprised you did not mention that asheville is a very liberal city and textiles is not our primary industry. i live across the road from billy graham's compound. you did not bring up the fact that he removed mitt romney and mormoniam as a cult from his list and has been controversial here. for the last two years, republicans have been in control of north carolina, unfortunately. they get into abortion and voter i.d. which was defeated. going back to asheville, we are a liberal city. i have already voted for obama and i voted for him in 2008 and i think he is the answer for this country, not romney. host: talk to us. guest: western north carolina is a fairly conservative area. asheville is a liberal pocket within western north carolina. it is true that the website for the graham association had listed more medicine as a cult until recently, until they had kind words for mitt romney and they took that off their website. make about what you will. host: our next call comes from edwin in

strong as it has ever been. there is a spirit of cooperation with our city and county government. i am convinced kentucky's future is better than it might at first appear because of the quality of people and their willingness cooperate and move us in the direction of common good. if i was a betting man, i would get some money on kentucky and our capacity to get this turned around at a higher rate of speed. ex-president john allen roush, thank you very much for your time and for your information -- >> president john allen roush. >> thank you for the job that you and c-span do. >> back to phone calls. we'll be here until 8:30 eastern time and then you'll get an opportunity to see inside the hall and the last half-hour of preparations. you will get an insider's view tonight on this network. lisa is watching us in ohio. the question is, does the vice presidential pick matter, and if so, why? what do you think of this year's election? >> i think the vice presidential pick matters. paul ryan is a tea party advocate. that is what has inspired me. these kids think there should be a free rid

evening. governor dukakis, yours is the first closing statement, sir. >> 28 years ago, as a young man just graduated from law school, i came to this city, came clear across the country, to watch john kennedy be nominated for the presidency of the united states, right here in los angeles. i never dreamed that some day i would win that nomination and be my party's nominee for president. that's america. that's why i'm proud and grateful to be a citizen of this country. 26 days from today you and millions of americans will choose two people to lead us into the future as president and vice president of the united states. our opponents say, things are okay. don't rock the boat. not to worry. they say we should be satisfied. but i don't think we can be satisfied when we're spending $150 billion a year in interest alone on the national debt, much of it going to foreign bankers, or when 25% of our high school students are dropping out of school, or when we have 2.5 million of our fellow citizens, a third of them veterans, who are homeless and living on streets and in doorways in this country, when

the naval observatory, but the first one to do so was walter mondale and it was not until the 1970's that the vice president even stayed in the city. there were no major airways in, roadways in, and they finally found coolidge, and there was no justice of the peace around. his father was basically a notary, and he took the oath with his father with his hand on the family bible in the living room. the role of the vice president has changed considerably, and i would give credit to both romney and obama for picking a vice presidential nominee that not only could help them get elected but could help them govern. i think these are both, to a degree, responsible selections in that respect. i think no matter who wins, we will see either ryan for biden -- or biden play a significant role over the next four years. >> we are previewing the upcoming debate in danville, kentucky, and throwing in some vice-presidential trivia all along the way. let me share with you one of the mamas from 2010 during the height of the health-care debate, a meeting that took place at blair house across the street f
